So Good! Loved it! Now I'm growing my basil at home so I will always have fresh basil for it.

I decided to try this once...it is now a weekly meal, and dare I say tastes even better as leftovers for lunch the next day. Instead of grilled cheese, I serve with either warmed crusty bread or I tear pitas, sprinkle with olive oil and sea salt and warm in oven, yummmmm

This soup was very tasty and very easy to make. Perfect for a cold winter day!

I made the soup, but not the sandwiches. Not because I don't like grilled cheese, but I didn't have the stuff. And besides, I can't figure out what the "ultimate" part is. Cheese, bread and butter equals your average grilled cheese sandwich.

This soup looks great but I'm not sure what you meanL You say to use the Ultimate Grilled Cheese sandwich. I know how to make grilled sandwich but is the "Ultimate" recipe something new?
